  1. Grind 2 teaspoons juniper berries, the allspice berries, and the peppercorns in a spice grinder until coarsely ground, then stir in the salt. Press the ground spices into both sides of the flank steak; set aside to marinate at least 30 minutes.
  2. Bring beef broth and remaining juniper berries to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium heat. Simmer until the broth has reduced by 1/4, about 5 minutes. Stir in heavy cream and gin. Return to a simmer, and cook until reduced by half, about 10 minutes. Keep sauce warm over very low heat.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil grate.
  4. Brush the flank steak with olive oil on both sides. Cook on preheated grill until cooked to desired degree of doneness, about 4 minutes per side for medium. Place steak on a plate, and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
  5. Slice the steak thinly and place onto a serving dish. Remove the juniper berries from the gin sauce and discard. Serve the sliced steak accompanied by the gin sauce.

I left the cream & gin out & it was very good. The spices really make it.

WE love this recipe. Made it 5 times now. It's my boyfriends favorite "show off" dish. He gets to grill the steaks and I pull out hte mortar and pestil to grind away. The first few times we ...

Not a big hit here. Too much allspice, in fact I would leave it out. Also needs a bit of sugar. probably won't make this again.
